Severe Complications With Eustachian Tubes
Symptoms Of Blocked Eustachian Tubes
Symptoms of a blocked eustachian tube include feelings of dizziness, hearing problems, a ringing or popping sensation in the ears, pain in the ears, or ears that feel full. A physician can look at the ears and determine if the eustachian tubes are blocked. It is very easy to open blocked eustachian tubes by closing the mouth, holding the nose with two fingers, and gently blowing to create a 'pop' in the ears. Chewing gum and yawning may also help. When the eustachian tubes open, most patients will hear a popping noise that represents the amount of pressure from inside and outside of the ears.
